Score: 110 - 95
Point Spread: -6/-105 Oklahoma City
5* NBA WESTERN CONFERENCE GAME OF THE WEEK: Thunder -6.5
This is a great spot to jump on the Thunder against a Hornets team that has played well above their true potential so far.
The Hornets are coming off a close 96-100 loss to the Rockets on Wednesday, but if you look closer they were down by 19-points at half before the Rockets took their foot off the gas and let them make it seem a lot closer than it really was.
The Thunder will be extremely motivated to get back on track after a shocking 97-107 loss at home to the Grizzlies. Oklahoma City built a 10-point 1st quarter lead before a miserable 2nd quarter where they were outscored 15-36. The Thunder will take no chances of letting New Orleans hang around in this game.
Oklahoma City has really responded well after a loss this season. After losing the opener to the Spurs, they beat the Trailblazers by 14-points. Then they followed up a loss to Atlanta with a 20-point blowout win over the Raptors. I expect a very similar result tonight as the Hornets will struggle to keep this one close at all. BET OKLAHOMA CITY!
